Yijia Li ’17, MFA, has been featured on the Twin Cities PBS (TPT) Art Is... series.

Inspired by classic Chinese landscape paintings, Li uses female figures as a main subject matter in her work. The process involves using wax mixed with pigment and a heat gun to keep the mixture soluable. Li says "speed is important" in this process and likens the texture of tapping a paintbrush on hot wax to touching human skin.

Art is... is a new series that highlights local emerging artists.
